The agent of misfiring Southampton striker Manolo Gabbiadini has ruled out a return to Italy for his client in the immediate future.
The 26-year-old has found the back of the net just three times in 17 appearances for the Saints this season and his form of late has been called into question by supporters.
Gabbiadini was an instant hit following his January switch to the Premier League last season, netting six goals in his first four games for the south coast club.
However, the Azzurri international has struggled to replicate that form since and he has been linked with a return to Serie A.
Gabbiadini's stock remains high in his native Italy, but his agent insists a return home soon is simply not on the agenda for the former Napoli hitman.
"We're fine there [in England]", Silvio Pagliari told TMW Radio when asked about a return to Italy for Gabbiadini.
"For now, we're certainly not talking about it.
"But, in the market, never say never", he added.
